It is not mandatory that you return your vehicle to an authorized dealership in order to maintain the integrity of your vehicle warranty. In order to maintain the integrity of your warranty, the maintenance schedule outlined in your vehicle owner's manual (or your extended warranty coverage contract) must be followed and documented. As your chosen automotive service and repair specialist, we will ensure the maintenance schedule of your vehicle is followed. We will also ensure that any required warranty repairs are undertaken promptly by the appropriate repair facility.
When you press your brake pedal, you engage a complex system. Here's how it works: the applying of the brake pedal forces brake fluid to engage systems that force the brake pad onto the brake disc rotor, causing friction and bringing your car to a stop. The brake pads of your car are fitted to the brake caliper, this is the part of the car that applies and releases the brake pads from the disc rotor.
Brake calipers comprise the brake caliper housing, inside this housing is a piston or pistons (depending on your car) that push or release when the brake pedal is pressed or released. Specifically designed rubber components ensure that the brake (hydraulic) fluid does not leak from the system or allow dirt and grime into the system.
When you get your brakes checked, we may recommend a brake caliper service to keep the pistons and sliders free from dirt and debris in order to work effectively.
LUBE, OIL AND FILTER
We don't just change your oil and filter. We check all your fluid levels, belts, lights, hoses, tire pressure, tire wear, brakes and air filters.
We always use the oils recommended for your vehicle, regular or synthetic.
All of our used oils, used filters and used oil containers are recycled and disposed of through GFL - Green for Life Environmental.
WHEELS & SUSPENSION
Your suspension is what connects your wheels to the rest of your vehicle. A properly maintained suspension allows you to drive straight, turn and brake safely, and reduces the bumps, vibrations, and noise from the road. These are warning signs that your suspension requires maintenance:
Pulling to the side while driving. This is a sign that your suspension is out of alignment or that your tires are not properly inflated.
Vibrations in the car and steering wheel while driving. This is usually caused by your tires not being evenly balanced.
Tires losing contact in wet or icy conditions. This can be an indication that the suspension has become loose and is not making solid contact with the road.
Bumpy or jarring ride. This is also a result of a worn out suspension.
Difficulty steering. This can be the result of low power steering fluid.
Tires balding on one side. This is the result of the tires not being at a 90 degree angle to the ground.
Squealing while turning. This is often a sign of a worn out power steering belt.
